Toronto Airport - Sheraton Gateway Hotel for a long layover?

Jump to last reply

We (family of 4, kids age 12 and 15, mom US citizen, dad UK citizen and permanent US resident) are headed from Manchester, UK, to our home near Seattle, USA via Toronto (Pearson) Airport. An unexpected changed ticket time has us arriving at 2:30pm at Terminal 1, then departing at 8:45pm, also at Terminal 1. (We don't get to Seattle until 11:30... not in our plans - oh well!).

I had thought to see if we could get a driver for a brief tour of Toronto, but upon reflection realized that it would not be a great "break" in our trip.

I stumbled upon the "day use" rooms at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel (Terminal 3) and realized that spending an hour or so relaxing in the pool and spa, and/or taking a brief nap in the room, maybe adding in room service or a meal, would be a better break in our trip.

My questions are:
Do we clear US immigration/customs at Pearson? Do we exit the "secure" area to get to the Sheraton? What time will we need to get back to security in order to make our 8:45pm flight?

My husband's question is:
"Does this mean my duty-free Scotch from England won't go through to the US and will instead be confiscated either when we arrive and clear customs or when we attempt to board with it?" (he really wants to know the answer to this - his mom lost Yukon Jack when traveling from Canada to the UK via Amsterdam !).

Thanks in advance for any help!
